SIAC ~ 2018 - 2019 

The Taft School Improvement Advisory Council (SIAC) operates under a set of District guidelines which defines the scope of the committee and the goals of communication between school and community. While the role is defined as advisory, the committee has helped shape the school program in a positive way.
